Description

The new "Soloist" mouthpieces designed by Selmer-Paris have been inspired from the older "Soloist" models manufactured in the 40's. Precision tooled from a hard rubber bar, its inner chamber offers a nice direct volume. A warm, centered sound to play both Jazz and classical repertoire.

This mouthpiece is based on a vintage Selmer model, and certainly one can get a tone reminiscent of the golden age of jazz! The chamber is horseshoe shaped and small in size, which helps to create a well-centred and rounded sound. The tone was full and consistent throughout the range of the sax. I could produce a nice full warm pianissimo, and then a raw and buzzy tone when playing forte. This is a very versatile mouthpiece, one that could be used for classical concerts or for the lush sounds of a big band sax section.
